Everything Everywhere, the company formed from the merger between T-mobile and Orange, is the only mobile phone retailer, other than Apple itself, to have confirmed that it will stock the iPad 2.
The device will launch on March 25 and will be available to purchase in Everything Everywhere stores across both T-mobile and Orange brands.
Details about availability and exact pricing are yet to be announced. A spokesman for Everything Everywhere could not confirm whether it would be stocked in all stores, but that it would be available across both brands. He added: “More details would be announced in due course.”
Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad 2 in San Francisco last night and confirmed that the pricing will be identical to the 2010 iPad at its introduction.
The new iPad 2 is one-third thinner than the original tablet and slightly lighter. It has a front and rear-facing cameras, which allows video conferencing between iPads, Mac computers and the most recent iPhones and iPods.
